On October 27, 2006, the St. Louis Cardinals became the first team to win as few as 83 games to win the World Series. The Cardinals, who posted a losing record after the All-Star break, clung to their NL Central lead and defeated the favored Padres, Mets, and Tigers in the post-season, earning their 10th title. Shortstop David Eckstein was named World Series Most Valuable Player.

In the first postseason game ever played at Yankee Stadium, veteran Giants outfielder Casey Stengel becomes the first player to hit a World Series homer in the Bronx ballpark, breaking a 4-4 deadlock in the top of the ninth inning with an inside-the-park round-tripper off Joe Bush. The Game 1 matchup is the first Fall Classic contest to be broadcast nationally.
